I finally broke down and updated to quantum. What do the scissors(snipping tool) do? I thought if you clicked on them you were given the option to select a portion of the screen to cut and save. When I click them nothing happens now with the new version.

Any good  ?

No help. Clicking on the scissor icon does absolutely nothing.

Does it matter what site you are using? Add-ons -- this is an add-on that Firefox installs on its own -- do not run on certain Mozilla sites or on built-in pages.

Also, thank you for sharing your extension lists. Since you use NoScript, you probably need to allow scripts on a page before you can use add-ons that inject content into the page (such as the screenshot overlay).

Well I am trying it on the email page at gmail and nothing happens. No script is not blocking anything on that page. Also on this page nothing happens.

You're absolutely sure about that  ? Have you tried disabling it (for now) to see what happens  ?

In your first post you say :

"When I click them nothing happens now with the new version. "

Which suggests that it did work before ...... (?)

If I click the scissors and then go to paint there is nothing to paste. Also I seem to remember that in that past clicking on scissor gave me cross hair to select what part of the page I want to snip. then i could paste it.

Ahh, but that's a switch from what you said earlier :

" Clicking on the scissor icon does absolutely nothing. "

Would you take a look at this (if you haven't already) :

Anything helpful there  ?

Yes that is what I had before. So the scissors that are on the new Quantum are not the same scissors that I had before. I guess I don't need them. I will remove them from the tool bar.

You can check the Browser Console to see if there are message about Firefox screenshots.

Some websites may prevent extensions from working if they have very restrictive CSP policy rules.
